I went thru the same thing with my husband last year. He had a good sperm count but his sperm motility was very low. It means that only %20 of how many sperm he has are the only ones that are moving. And to get pregnant those sperm have to have the swim of there life lol. But surprisingly I was more of the problem with pcos and wasn't ovulating so I was prescribed clomid and became pregnant on the very first round. Now I'm due to have my fis

First little man in 8 and a half weeks. You might have to do iui's just to help u out a bit. But it only takes one sperm to get u pregnant so there's always hope

Here's and example if his motiltiy is %20 that means the other %80 are not moving. So if u know his sperm count take that number multiply it by %80 then subtract that number from his sperm count total whatever u get is the number of sperm that are actually doing what they should be. If its under 20 million that's considered a low sperm count and makes it much harder to conceive
